Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert reportedly knew their marriage was over months ago.

The 31-year-old and her fellow country singer spouse announced their plans to divorce after four years of marriage on Monday. But the news hasn’t just come as a surprise to fans, it’s also been a shock for members of their family.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Miranda’s mother Beverly Lambert reportedly told Radar Online when contacted about the divorce news. “They didn’t tell me!”

Over the years Beverly has been seen as one of Miranda’s closest confidants. But as the outlet added that Blake reportedly filed for divorce months ago, it seems the couple have kept their break-up a secret from their loved ones for a long time.

Radar also reports a judge is set to make a decision on the divorce this week.

Meanwhile a source close to Blake, 39, revealed the star still loved his estranged spouse despite being the one to file the papers.

The insider, who works closely with the singer on the US version of The Voice, told Extra that rumours of Blake being unfaithful during his marriage were not true because he had never cheated on Miranda.

They added that Blake always made sure to have “out time” from the programme so he could go home and spend quality time with his wife, who he was devoted to.

In their joint statement, Miranda and Blake said the divorce was something they had never envisioned in their future.

“It is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately,” they said. “We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
